Nuno might give a lifeline to a forgotten Tottenham player after a failed transfer.
This summer, Tottenham were looking to add a new midfielder to their squad.
Nuno Espirito Santo is set to give Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks a lifeline after his side failed to sign a new central midfielder this summer. After impressing new boss Nuno, the 25-year-old will stay and compete for his place at his boyhood club.
Winks started both of Tottenham’s Europa League Conference games against Pacos de Ferriera, and the midfielder is expected to play more this season.
Spurs were apparently looking for a central midfielder and have been linked with a number of players, including Weston McKennie of Juventus.
During his tenure at Juventus, Fabio Paritici was in charge of bringing the US international to the club, but no deal for the 23-year-old has materialized.
Last season, Winks was denied first-team appearances by Jose Mourinho, and it came as no surprise when he was left out of Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2020 squad as a result.
Winks was linked with a £25 million move to Manchester United in June, according to The Sun, but the Red Devils opted against it.
Winks had been offered to Leeds, according to The Athletic on Friday, but Marcelo Bielsa’s side were not interested.
But the news that Winks is staying at Spurs must give him the boost he needs to keep going and save his career before it’s too late.
Following Spurs’ promotion to the Conference League, the midfielder knows he’ll have many more chances to prove he’s deserving of a starting spot.
The England international, who has two Premier League goals in 102 appearances for Spurs, needs to make the most of his opportunities.
Spurs have had a better-than-expected start to the season, climbing to the top of the standings after three consecutive victory over Manchester City, Wolves, and Watford.
Tanguy Ndombele, the club’s record signing, is another midfielder who looks poised to stay at Spurs this summer.
The 24-year-old has struggled to live up to his £55 million price tag since joining the club in 2019.
During his tenure in north London, Ndombele has struggled with fitness and has had multiple physical setbacks.
Despite a difficult period at Spurs, the midfielder continues to impress. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
